County draws plans for Fuller/Washington intersection

The intersection is now rated E or F.

All proposals would link in to the ongoing Fuller Road work, in which 1.7 miles of Fuller Road will be reconstructed, adding sidewalks and new traffic control devices in some areas. A roundabout will be installed to the north of the Fuller/Washington intersection where the I-90 off ramp meets Fuller, for example.

"Once we do the intersection, then the entire length of Fuller Road would be rehabilitated," said county spokeswoman Mary Duryea.

The Fuller Road reconstruction project is expected to be completed by the end of 2011, at a cost of $13.5 million of county funds.

The intersection project is tentatively scheduled for a fall 2011 start, and to be finished by the end of 2013.

A public meeting on the project will be held Thursday, July 22, at 6:30 p.m. in the NanoFab South Auditorium/Rotunda at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, 225 Fuller Road, Albany. There will be an opportunity for public comment. Comments may also be sent to FullerWashingtonComments@albanycounty.com.

The meeting was rescheduled from a date in June.""
